Review: Nights In The Gardens Of Spain

User Review  - Elizabeth Heritage - Goodreads

I found this book to be a compelling, vivid portrait of what it was like to be a gay man in Auckland in the 1990s. Ihimaera's writing is honest, raw and graceful; and the plot of this fictionalised autobiography is both emotionally and narratively satisfying. Highly recommended. Read full review

User Review  - Janet Tuck - Goodreads
